10 Gorgeous sunsets like this one bring to a close the daily street-performer’s celebration in Mallory Square. 11 We arose at daybreak the next day and drove the Callaway to the southernmost point in the country, which lies just 90 miles north of Cuba. Early mornings are the best time to avoid the crowds that gather around this popular spot. 12 The Key West Custom House opened in 1891, and over the years that followed, it served as a government center, a post office, and a courthouse. It was abandoned and boarded up during the Depression, but it has since been restored and now houses the Key West Art & Historical Society. 13 The Grassy Key Dolphin Research Center is located at MM 59 and is a not-for-profit education-and-research facility. The center—which rehabilitates injured dolphins and other sea creatures—is open to the public. 14 After sunset we headed over to Duval Street to have dinner and walk along this famous Key West roadway. Sloppy Joe’s is one of the town’s more famous watering holes.
